Dear Partners in Prayer,
A Great Cloud of Witnesses are on this earth, as well as those who are already with the Lord!
At any time of day or night, all over the world, Christians are praying and interceding for
others. Some pray in their “prayer closet” and others pray in groups and still others are part of
a 24 hour, seven days a week “prayer center.” Did you know that the ancient monasteries were
often formed as prayer centers where intercession was made at every hour of the day?
Here in the United States there are houses of prayer, in Kansas, St. Louis, Atlanta, Maryland,
Connecticut, to name just a few. Here people gather at all hours of the day and night for the
purpose of making intercession for their communities, their local churches, and for the world
community. Prayer can change the local churches and communities in some powerful ways.
If you have access to the internet you might try googling “International House of Prayer” and
look for yourself.
In this New Year let us think about the role of intercession in our own prayer life. Included are
some suggestions as to topics of prayer one might use to effectively intercede for others.
